A scarf for my boss, he's a good guy and he gives me stuff (like a TV and a Microwave).
And a hat for one of the girls I work with. She's an art student and a skate rat and she reminds me of myself when I was 21.
They were both well received.
I also have a pair of slippers to finish. An "easy" yet not so easy project. They are for a good friend. Better than a "good" friend, a best friend, my partner in crime, one of the few people who gets my morbid/quirky sense of humour, the first person I told (after my X of course) when I was expecting, a friend who would help me "hide the body" no questions asked. She's fighting a battle with cancer and it is going to be a hard, hard fight. I feel so helpless. What I can... and will do... is knit for her. She isn't in Calgary but if I can keep sending her little things to show that I am sending her... not just knitted objects... but all my hopes and prayers. It's something isn't it?
And on this Canadian Thanksgiving... I am thankful to have as many people to care about as I have... having people to love is a gift. My friends... my family... they are the best gift I could ever ask for and I am thankful for them every day.
